When I strip off all the paper masks and am left with the rough shapes, I have to tell myself repeatedly that this is the background. I am weirdly obsessed with neatness, even though that is just not my natural painting/drawing style. I had a ferocious bout of sanding to get the texture just right which has left me with itchy arms and a sneeze. Best of all has been my discovery of an acrylic ink which dries waterproof. This is something I have only dreamt of! It meant that I could paint my linework with one fluid stroke, completely flat, not laborious going over of lines to get the right coverage. The freedom!
